Safe Building 101: Creating a Climate-Controlled Space In Your Home

As I started to increase my art collection, I wanted to make sure that my investment was protected. I wasn't sure exactly how to store it all when it wasn't on display, but I knew I needed to do something. I decided to talk with a local construction contractor about how to secure my art, and he suggested a climate-controlled secure room in my home. They built a vault-like space in the house that is perfect for long-term storage. I created this site to showcase what was done in the hopes that others may seek the same solution. I hope the information here helps you to secure your financial investment as well.

What Are You Building? How The Answer To This Question Dictates Who You Hire

Building something new is always exciting. It is that same feeling you got when you were a kid and you were building with blocks or interlocking brick toys and were trying to figure out what to build. Now, as an adult, you are always thinking ahead to projects and things you want to construct, even though you are not really the one doing all of the building.

In fact, you have to hire a construction company for just about anything you want to build in the real/adult world. What are you building now or building next? The answer to this specific question dictates who you will hire for your project. Here is how your answer dictates who you will hire. 

Office Building, Apartment Building, or Store

These are all commercial properties which means that you will need to hire a commercial construction company. It also means that you will need the services of an architect to make sure the building is properly constructed and appears as you would want it, all while remaining within the building codes and regulations of your city and state. The architect's plans help your contractor follow through with the project and provides you with someone you can defer to when the contractor runs into a problem. The contractor goes to the architect for a solution instead of asking you what to do, although you might be included in the conversation if the problem is a big one in terms of making your building look the way you want it to look.

Garage, Barn, House, Workshop

All of these structures are residential structures. They exist on a residential property, and therefore require a residential construction contractor. You probably already have a house on a property, but you may want a new garage or a workshop where you can go to do all the things you like to do. Your residential contractor can help with that. 

Manufacturing Plant, Industrial Plant, Factory for the Processing of Consumables, Etc.

Building a factory or plant of any kind falls under the industrial contractor's jurisdiction. He or she will spend months, years even, building your plant and getting every brick and every metal roof piece and every piece of equipment in the factory just right. Depending on the magnitude of your factory construction project, the contractor might subcontract some of the work out to other contractors in order to complete your factory/plant in a shorter amount of time.
